Abortion clinic supervisor on women’s choices

A supervisor at an abortion clinic says the following:

“I feel it’s important for women to acknowledge that sometimes they have got a choice, even though it’s not a very good one. Like living on welfare, it is a choice, even though it’s not attractive. You acknowledge that people have got a choice, even if it is a very small amount of choice because of their circumstances…

Women may say, oh, I don’t want to have a baby because I haven’t enough money, or my partner and I haven’t known one another very long. When I feel it’s good just to say, I don’t want a baby at the moment. I think that’s perfectly all right. There’s nothing stronger than that, when you think of what it takes to have a baby.”
